Our Latest Mascot

Sassy has a tough act to follow but she is a loyal candy loving dog!

CandyFavorites' Mascot

Nugget passed away in 2004 but served as the faithful CandyFavorites Mascot for 15.5 years! She was a very good dog!


For more than 80 years, we at CandyFavorites have abided by key core principles: to provide customers with the highest quality candy, at reasonable prices, with exceptional customer care.

At CandyFavorites, we believe that "the future of candy is rooted in the past" . We have been and remain committed to being leaders of the wholesale candy industry who preserve the values that have guided us since our inception in 1927.

An Old-Fashioned Shopping Experience

Knowing that the Internet can be impersonal, our goal is to provide a secure online shopping experience while also offering the kind of personal attention customers associate with old fashioned “brick and mortar” candy shoppes, when you could ask for something special that you wanted and you could expect a smile from across the counter.

Unlike other online stores whose aim is strictly commercial, we also  hope that our visitors enjoy our Blog and Educational sections and learn about products that we carry and that have a special place in so many corners of America.

Our website features more than 2,800 varieties of candy, ranging from candy bars to bulk candy to retro candy, and from companies such as Brach’s, Ferrara Pan, Just Born, and more. All merchandise is housed in a temperature-controlled warehouse operated by McKeesport Candy Company, one of the oldest wholesale candy companies in the nation, which is yet another way to ensure that you have the best product delivered to your doorstep.

Sweet Surprises

Looking for a unique gift? Don't forget that we frequently handle custom packaging requests and we can create candy programs, ideal for corporate gifts or promotions, regardless of complexity. We have Retro Candy Boxes, as well, that make fun and unique party favors and gifts for anybody, for all occasions.

Representing the third generation of private ownership with more than 50 years of combined employment, Jon H. Prince and Tom Griffin continue the traditions started years ago. They each look forward to providing you an online shopping experience that will be as delightful as our candy.
